Journal special issues: Geospatial Privacy & Security

Location privacy has been a consistent theme in spatial information science for quite some time. While early work on this topic was primarily focused on theoretical concerns over the exploitation of personal location information, recent advances in mobile technology have spurred renewed interest in this domain. As the ubiquity of these sensor-rich devices, smart homes and cities, and content contributed to geosocial media applications increases, the privacy and security of our personal data has come to the forefront of our social dialog. Citizens today are demonstrating appropriate concerns about data sharing, how their data are being used, and implications of having so much data in the hands of a select few.
